Australia’s National Safe Work Month

Preliminary data shows that last year in Australia around 163 people died whilst doing their job. This serves as a reminder that workplace health and safety is an ongoing and continuous process that needs constant monitoring and improvement.

Join National Safe Work Month This October

Safe Work Month is a National initiative that has been going on since 2009. Each year, throughout October, Safe Work Month promotes and supports safer workplaces, raising awareness of workplace health and safety. 

Businesses around Australia are invited to register and join Safe Work Month, attend the free events and access a world of on-demand resources highlighting ways to create and maintain healthy workplaces.

This year, over 4 weeks in October, Safe Work Month is covering four key themes.

  1. Injuries at Work
  2. Mental Health
  3. Managing Workplace Health and Safety Risks and Preventing Harm
  4. Safe and Healthy Work for All

The primary message:

“Workplace Health and Safety: Think Physical, Think Psychological”

A particularly relevant message for those in Western Australia where new workplace health and safety legislation has recently come into force.
